South star Pooja Hegde is no stranger to Bollywood. The model-turned-actress made her debut in the Hindi film industry with Mohenjo Daro in 2016. The much-anticipated film bombed at the box office despite starring Hrithik Roshan in the lead. But Pooja is making all the right moves and will now be seen in the hit franchise Housefull. The fourth installment co-starring Akshay Kumar, Kriti Sanon, Kriti Kharbanda, Bobby Deol and Riteish Deshmukh will arrive in theatres on October 25. The film was supposed to be helmed by Sajid Khan but he was replaced by director Farhad Samji after the former was accused during the #MeToo movement.
Pooja may be immensely popular down South but looks like she is slowly making her presence felt in Bollywood too. We say so because rumours are rife that she has signed a three-film deal with Housefull 4 producer Sajid Nadiadwala. If this is true then its good news for the starlet and her acting career. Sajid Nadiadwala’s banner is one of the biggest in Bollywood and this means Pooja will finally get that boost which she deserves. While we are waiting for an official confirmation on the same, an industry source has revealed few details on the same saying, “Sajid Nadiadwala has always had a keen eye for talent and is very impressed by Pooja’s work in Housefull 4.”
“ While the film has an ensemble star cast who have long been associated with the franchise, Pooja managed to hold her own and everyone’s been raving about her comic timing. Sajid launched names like Tiger Shroff and mentored actors like Jacqueline Fernandez and Disha Patani among others. He now sees immense potential in Pooja and there are rumors of him signing her for 3 films under the Nadiadwala Grandson banner, details of which are under wraps at the moment.”
